Soiree Sparkle


Happy Friday Everyone!

Tis the season for spirited soirees, and the inevitable question of what to wear constantly nags. Unless you have a fab frock collection or an unlimited budget (either way I’m jealous), you have to get a little creative. This is where the blank fashion slate of a LBD can be your swiss army knife of fashion for the holidays.

In this specific look, I’m amping up the classic black number with a layer of sequins, which is actually a sequin T-shirt, layered under the dress. Many people said they would have never known it was two separate pieces – and that’s the beauty of it. Multiple looks, less space and money leftover to buy Christmas gifts? That is what I’m talking about.

  4. Love this idea! I definitely prefer seeing ingenious styling instead of a store bought dress. Seriously, your holiday look is unique in a sea of sameness. XOXO.
